Scheduling audit reports

Except for the All Events (last 24 hours) report, you can schedule auditing reports to send to specified email recipients or to a file.

There are two ways to schedule an audit report. You can select a report from the list of reports and manage the schedules for that selected report. You also can view the list of reports separated into unscheduled and scheduled categories and manage schedules from there. In either location, you can add, edit, and remove schedules.

Select Auditing & Alerting | Audit Reports.

Select a report, and select Scheduling | Schedules.
Select Scheduling | Scheduled Reports, and select a report from the list of unscheduled and scheduled reports.

1
Select Settings | User Options | Audit Reports, and select Show scheduled reports for all users. See Setting options for audit reports.
2
Select Auditing & Alerting | Audit Reports | Scheduling | Scheduled Reports. See Scheduling audit reports.
